Alabama Update/Deer Finale

Well that's a wrap on the 2011-2012 deer season. Finished up with a WMA hunt in Lowndes County, AL this week. It was a rifle hunt but I hunted with my bow most of the time. Our party of 5 only saw 2 deer over the course of our hunt. The rain this week threatened to shut us down but we toughed it out.

I enjoy a cup or two of coffee most mornings, which I drink black. And on occasion I will substitute my cup of Joe for an energy drink. So for a person who leads an active, healthy lifestyle, and needs a morning kick-off or an afternoon pick-me-up, what's the best option?
